Such a treat to come across these elephant seal beauties on a recent trip to the Central Coast this year! Another beach was stunning with its massive flock of seagulls. Such a remarkable coastline!

Thrilled to see one of my blogs posted on Roger Flowers’s website, Trauma Informed Classroom. His mission, that students deserve a flourishing, safe, and consistent classroom, free of triggers, is so important for students, especially the ones suffering from mental disabilities.

My blog, “When ADHD and Sports Don’t Mix,” takes place outside of the classroom where I try to find the right sport for my child, creating all kinds of trauma for both of us along the way. I finally give up, only to discover the perfect activity was there from the beginning.

Baking in Southern California heat and thinking of our trip a few weeks ago where we came across this magnificent view at Ragged Point, gateway to Big Sur. Would love to be back there again today!

If you’re still in the mood for a fun summer read and enjoy old Hollywood memories, find a shady bench and check out “Any Way I Can,” my father John Gay’s fond look back at 50 years of being a successful screenwriter. Co-writing this book with him was one of my life’s greatest pleasures!

This month’s blog might sound familiar to parents of a child with ADHD. It was the moment in time I was spurred to advocacy, thanks to a teacher who didn’t believe ADHD was real. His disbelief was my wake-up call, a true gift for the years ahead.
